Some people put a lot of faith in mothballs. I don't. The critters either move them or just go around them. I think I would buy a have-a-heart trap. When you have them in the trap take them for a ride about 10 miles and release them. I don't have ground hogs but I do that with other critters on my property. I can't get rid of them completely but I can controll the population. With 290 acres of woods behind my property it is impossible.

Put a T-post in the ground tie on a string and something that will bang against the post when the wind blows, like a tin can or pop can- moles and shrews don't like vibrations.

I found that out from an elderly man at a nursing home who used to farm ground all over Bee, Nebraska he was a very successful farmer. he said that when he was a kid his dad gave him a penny for each mole hole he could rid the mole from. Back in the olden days a penny could buy a 3 pieces of candy!
